About the Programme

B.Sc. (Hons) in Microbiology is a three-year undergraduate programme imparting comprehensive knowledge to the students in various areas of microbiology to meet the demand of industry & academia.

The coursework includes core microbiology and interdisciplinary subjects combined with essential multiple laboratory programs and a research project leading to the dissertation. A multidisciplinary approach is the essence of the programme which is achieved by offering open electives. The students will be introduced to fundamental research on the physiology biochemistry cell biology evolution ecology and clinical aspects related to microorganisms including the host response to these agents.

B.Sc. (H) in Microbiology programme enlightens students with the evolutionary relationships between microbes and their habitats. In addition the programme also prepares the students to develop a sense of identification towards the agents of infectious diseases and devise ways to combat them
